Our comment on
1982 is undoubtedly a great vintage that has caught more media attention than just about any other vintage. The wines in short: the Pomerols are showing an alarmingly mature colour and are ageing rapidly – my favourites are Trotanoy and Lafleur. The St. Emilions are showing the same tendency, many are still charming to drink and that at a distinctly lower price than the Pomerols. My favourites: Canon and Magdelaine. Haut Brion and La Mission are both great, otherwise the wines from Graves are unspectacular. Most wines from Margaux and Haut Médoc are pleasant and should be drunk soon, Château Margaux being an exception from this rule. St. Estéphe produced a range of succesful wines, particularly Cos. The greatest wines in this vintage come from St. Julien and Pauillac. The star in St. Julien is Léoville Las Cases having produced a wine of first growth quality, also very good are Gruaud Larose, Ducru Beaucaillou, Lagrange and Poyferré. All three first growths from Pauillac produced some of their best wines ever - Latour being for me the wine of the vintage. Both Pichons produced marvellous wines; Lalande a softer and more seductive wine and Baron for me one of the most underrated wines of the vintage – a classic Pauillac with great class. Wonderful are also Lynch Bages and Grand Puy Lacoste - both close to Premier Cru quality.
